Lightbulb Spot the error

It's an easy one, even I could find it

A logical win for Widjaja
Guillaume Baraise
Sunday, June 9, 2002

This is the first time an Indonesian player has won the title since the
creation of the tournament in 1953. Her win was to be expected. A
promising Asian tennis player, Angelique Widjaja (born December 12th
1984) has already won a senior tournament in Bali in September 2001. At
Roland-Garros, she made it to the semi-finals in the juniors draw last year,
but especially made a notable win this year in the main draw, defeating the
American Jill Craybas (n94) in the first round. Widjaja also won the juniors
title at Wimbledon in 2001.

Native of Bandung, the right-handed player has a classic game, arriving in
the tournament with a lot more to boast than the other players in the junior
circuit. But her run was not easy all the time. In the first round, she finally
took the match in the third set 7/5 against the Russian Galina Voskoboeva.
On the same score, she defeated Kim Clijsters' sister, Elke. It became a
little easier for her in the rounds to follow until arriving in the final. She lost
the first set to the American Ashley Harkleroad (n11) before dominating in
the last two sets.

More at ease on hard surfaces, Widjaja has a devastating two-handed
backhand. Despite her youth, she's a quick hitter, but her service and
rapidity on the court need working on. Trained by Meiske Wiguna and
Deddy Tedjamukti, the youngest of 5 children (she has four older brothers)
is following in the footsteps of Tamarine Tanasugarn, the leading
Indonesian player these last few years.

The juniors tournament was also an opportunity for the French public to
discover Ashley Harkleroad, nicknamed "the American Anna Kournikova".
The pretty blond, born May 2nd 1985, played her first final in a Grand Slam
event, after having been semi-finalist at the Australian Open, at
Roland-Garros and at the US Open in 2001. And like Widjaja, the player
from Tennessee is more comfortable on hard surfaces, given her great
game at the net. Psychologically speaking, she's a bit fragile, but her talent
is undeniable.

Harkleroad made the headlines last September at Flushing Meadow by
wearing rather provocative clothes on the court. At Roland-Garros, she
made the news by taking her revenge on Marion Bartoli. The French girl,
who triumphed in New York after defeating the American in the semi-finals,
was dominated this time 6/2, 6/1 in the third round by Jimmy Brown's pupil.
Ranked 287th, Ashley represents the future of women's tennis in the
states. Already sought after by numerous sponsors, we haven't seen the
last of her.

It says she beat Jill Craybas in the first round, then says she beat Valina Koskoevaba.

I noticed that one also, it didn't make sense. Maybe by senior tournament they meant a WTA event?

No, Ryan, she played both seniors and juniors this event

In seniors she beat Craybas, in juniors she beat Voskoboeva.

That was not the error.

Tamarine Tanasugarn plays for Thailand and not for Indonesia.
